Joining us for his 10th RUN we welcome back Detroit mainstay artist Camilo Pardo as he brings 1xRUN collectors his latest screen print Sitting Seven .
Created for Camilo's most recent show Zero Gravity which brought the storied Detroit artist back home for an exhibition Inner State Gallery .
"Many of my paintings, especially the figurative works featuring models and women, are frequently named after planets or they reference the universe – "Galaxy", "Miss Mars", "Mercury", "Luna" and so forth. I've tried over the years to keep that consistent, to touch upon the notion of "space" and limitless freedom. Zero Gravity is the point when you escape gravity's pull, you leave the atmosphere and everything floats. " - Camilo Pardo
ABOUT Camilo Pardo:
The art that Camilo Pardo has created over the years is all over Detroit. A considerable amount of it is present on our freeways at any given moment of the day. Most recognized for his design work on the Ford GT, Camilo put verve in the steel curves and reminded us that a car's first internal combustion takes place in an artist's mind. The car's external beauty is born there as well. That mind has not ceased from creative labors, even if they're no longer entirely devoted to Motor City mojo.
Camilo's paintings and drawings speak to both his love for linear perfection and his fascination for the manner in which those lines deliver aesthetic satisfaction to the viewer. His works genuinely seem to move and they are energized by what is obviously a rich understanding and respect for popular culture and traditional disciplines. In less talented hands, such a seeming contradiction of forces would negate the best efforts. Camilo makes them reconcile, complement each other and dance together.
